TRAVEL WITH ME: SAN CLEMENTE

 

San Clemente. Last Fall while I was deciding on where to go for a mini getaway I had so many ideas in mind but, my top priorities were: price, safety, and (duh) aesthetics. I was craving color and comfort but also ease of travel because sometimes public transportation or simply being within walking distance is preferable to explore the city.

Nestled in Orange County, San Clemente is an artsy but also lively beach city with plenty to explore and visit. The weather is really nice but I recommend bringing a cardigan or light coat if you decide to spend the night out. Its definitely a city I want to go back and explore. You can walk freely at night because literally everyone is awake. Whether they are grabbing a late night bite, walking back from the beach, finding some coffee, or hanging with friends. I love cities that are night owl friendly quite honestly. But don’t think that it’ll prevent a good sleep – the tourist and locals aren’t loud that you’ll need a sound machine or so. Even lounging at midnight with a movie and snack at your Air BNB is a treat.

OUR TRIP UP NORTH CENTRAL COAST ↠ AVENUE OF THE GIANTS

Leaving Cambria was hard y’all, a girl can get used to a beautiful ocean view & lush green flower fields pretty fast. But I was incredibly excited for our next adventure. We made our way to San Francisco, to embark on the Alcatraz tour (which I documented on my Instagram Stories so follow me on there!) Back in the city I must say it was quite bustling but the trolleys were quite fun! We had to drive on to the next city of Santa Rosa to check in to our hotel. The next day we had breakfast at Jeffrey’s Hillside Cafe that was absolutely remarkable. We let the waitress know that I have Celiac, so she very thoughtfully and diligently took care of my order and made sure my breakfast didn’t come into any contact with allergens. They also serve a damn fine cup of vegan coffee. They do have several plant-based & vegan options for y’all! Nick & I loved our meal and with full bellies, we went up on out north.
